Becoming A Teacher

Why Train with Us?

Working in partnership with our Accredited Provider, Essex Primary SCITT (Ofsted Outstanding Nov 2017), CTSA offers high quality training for graduates wishing to teach in primary schools through its one-year full time School Direct route leading to Qualified Teacher Status. (QTS)

Ofsted reported the following key strengths of our primary partnership:

  • There are consistently high employment rates, because the well-established provider is recognised by local head teachers as providing well-trained trainees who can help schools to raise standards.
  • Trainees make strong progress from their different starting points as a result of highly effective school-based and central training.
  • The very well-regarded and effective operational leadership of the partnership constantly seeks to improve upon already strong practice.
  • There is highly effective quality assurance of training, mentoring and assessment.
  • There is a range of highly effective mentors and expert central trainers who train, observe and advise trainees, and to who trainees can refer if they have questions or concerns.
  • Trainees’ and NQTs management of pupils behaviour is strong, resulting from very positive working relationships established quickly between trainees and their pupils.
  • Trainees and NQTs are confident in the subject knowledge for teaching English, Mathematics and a broad range of subjects.
  • Trainees and NQTs have high levels of professionalism.  They continually reflect on their practice and are hungry to improve.
